Personal:

Pride necessarily sprouts and grows; a pride that can only come from relentless kneading of unwilling flesh, painful months of grinding and burning away all that is heavy, all that is strength-sapping and useless to the body as a projectile. --John L. Parker, Jr., runner/author

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. --Theodore Roosevelt

Interesting day at my school with only about a third of the students in the building...today was our last official day before winter break, but we turned in grades on Friday.  

Sooo, Max actually ran a couple miles with me during my planning period, and then I knocked out 4X400m repeats in 79, 76, 74, and 74.  I did this on a bit of a whim, not to mention a tired mind after a sleepless night, but the cold air in my face was just what I needed.

Up Pinnacle East Summit, down West, and around Base Trail with Evan and Maya for 3+ miles of Christmas Eve hiking. My 3 and 8 year olds insisted that we go up the steep (more fun) side, and who I am I to argue?

This may become annual tradition!
